Sudadera con nudo de ahorcado causa polémica en redes sociales [FOTOS]
Una sudadera de la marca Burberry ha causado indignación por llevar a modo de lazo un nudo de ahorcado, el detalle se considera una mofa al tema del suicidio.
La marca Burberry vuelve a estar en el ojo de la tormenta en redes sociales, esta vez a causa del detalle en una sudadera de la colección "Tempest", que lleva a modo de cordón un nudo de ahorcado.
Riccardo Tisci, director artístico de Burberry, señaló que la inspiración para la colección de Otoño/Invierno 2019 es la tempestad en el mar [de ahí su nombre], por lo que se utilizan elementos náuticos, como el nudo.
Sin embargo, en redes sociales y en especial en Instagram, los usuarios calificaron que la marca estaría incitando al suicidio.
"El suicidio no es moda", expresó la modelo Liz Kennedy, a través de su cuenta de Instagram. Además, cuestionó que ninguna de las personas que participan en la elaboración de la colección se diera cuenta de que eso estaba mal.
@burberry @riccardotisci17 Suicide is not fashion. It is not glamorous nor edgy and since this show is dedicated to the youth expressing their voice, here I go. Riccardo Tisci and everyone at Burberry it is beyond me how you could let a look resembling a noose hanging from a neck out on the runway. How could anyone overlook this and think it would be okay to do this especially in a line dedicated to young girls and youth. The impressionable youth. Not to mention the rising suicide rates world wide. Let’s not forget about the horrifying history of lynching either. There are hundreds of ways to tie a rope and they chose to tie it like a noose completely ignoring the fact that it was hanging around a neck. A massive brand like Burberry who is typically considered commercial and classy should not have overlooked such an obvious resemblance. I left my fitting extremely triggered after seeing this look (even though I did not wear it myself). Feeling as though I was right back where I was when I was going through an experience with suicide in my family. Also to add in they briefly hung one from the ceiling (trying to figure out the knot) and were laughing about it in the dressing room. I had asked to speak to someone about it but the only thing I was told to do was to write a letter. I had a brief conversation with someone but all that it entailed was “it’s fashion. Nobody cares about what’s going on in your personal life so just keep it to yourself” well I’m sorry but this is an issue bigger than myself. The issue is not about me being upset, there is a bigger picture here of what fashion turns a blind eye to or does to gain publicity. A look so ignorantly put together and a situation so poorly handled. I am ashamed to have been apart of the show. #burberry. I did not post this to disrespect the designer or the brand but to simply express an issue I feel very passionate about.
Tras la polémica, Marco Gobbetti, CEO de Burberry, emitió un comunicado disculpando y asegurando que la prenda fue eliminada de la colección..
Riccardo Tisci, el director artístico de la marca, también pidió disculpas por la insensibilidad mostrada.
Apparently no amount of diversity etc initiatives look likely to help dial down the we-know-best meters of some of the world's biggest designer names. The latest brouhaha - as missed by evidently every media outlet that reported on the show, but now highlighted by American model @liz.kennedy_ who walked in the show, took backstage shots and claims to have made an attempt to draw her concerns to the attention of the show organisers that she thought the idea highly inappropriate, notably in a show that was supposed to be dedicated to the world's youth - only to be fobbed off - new @burberry artistic director @riccardotisci17 thought it was a fantastic idea to style a hoodie in the Fall 2019 show with an attached noose.
